Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform
What is the Young Artist Platform Award?
Every year Oxford Lieder grants Young Artist Awards to two or three outstanding duos, all enrolled on post-graduate courses at the leading UK conservatoires and already at the outset of major careers. As part of the Award these Young Artists are each given recitals at the Oxford Lieder Festival, as well as a number of paid song recital engagements around the country.
How can I apply?

How Can I Engage Oxford Lieder Young Artists?
Oxford Lieder is currently offering generous sponsorship to music clubs, societies and festivals who wish to offer recitals to our exceptional young musicians. Oxford Lieder will support 50% of the fee of £300 per musician (the total fee for the concert is £600, of which the music club pays only £300, as well as reasonable expenses).
Once the recital contract is in place, Oxford Lieder will put you in contact with the artists directly so you can develop an interesting and attractive programme that appeals to your members. We will also promote the recital through our email list and website.
If you are a Music Club or Music Festival and you are interested in engaging one of our award-winning duos for your forthcoming season, please contact Sophie Ruggiero at [email protected]
The Oxford Lieder Scholarship is generously supported by Trufflehunter, Jesus College & the Kohn Foundation and the Jean Meikle Trust. Anyone interested in adding further support for the Young Artist Platform should contact Peter Burrows at [email protected]
